they wouldn't filibuster over here that he would support and that boehner would support, if it were reasonable, but right now we haven't heard anything. i don't know, and it's none of my business, i guess, although i am very serious, if the speaker and the majority leader, the republican leader over here are even talking. i mean, what's going on here? mr. president, you can't legislate with yourself. we have nobody to work with, to compromise. that's what legislation is all about, is the ability to compromise. the republicans in the house have left town. the negotiations between the president and the speaker have fallen apart as they have for the last three and a half years. we've tried mightily to get something done. just go over what the little drill here, mr. president, to remind everyone how unreasonable the republicans have been. senator conrad and judd gregg came up with a proposal to pattern what they wanted to do after the base closing commission. commission would be appointed and they would appoint back to us, no flust years, no amendment, yes or no like we did with the base closings
john boehner would put that on the floor even if most republicans were not in favor of it. bill? >> okay. we're going to hope that something like that can be at the very minimum at this point. john harwood, thanks. see you later. don't worry, be happy. one of our next guests says should we go over the fiscal cliff, someone else on wall street says the cliff will not be a doomsday event. we'll get them to make their case coming up. >> and also later on. facebook making an about face on using user photos for advertising. >> and winter storm euclid is pummeling the east coast. the latest storm and storm track coming up in the next hour of the program. you're watching cnbc, first in business worldwide. plus, in-branch seminars at over 500 locations, where our dedicated support teams help you know more so your money can do more.

and their speaker, john boehner. >> reporter: but 90 minutes later new york representative said two votes for funding are forthcoming, one on friday for 9 billion in flood insurance and one in two weeks on another 51 billion. >> whatever reason the speaker decided not to bring it to a vote this week, obviously we disagreed were that and that's in the past. the bottom line is between friday morning and january 15th, those two votes, will bring in $60 billion that's absolutely necessary for new york, new jersey and connecticut. >> king obviously softening his tone from earlier. clearly some reversal, guys, based on republican reaction to something the republican house speaker could have handled. bill, back to you. >> all right, brian. thank you very much. well, those things, we know that's certain in life, death, taxes and another sequel of a batman movie. another one. our tax code remains far from clear. wait until you hear how much more you could be paying the tax man thanks to the phase out of some deductions embedded in the tax deal that congress just passed. that's coming up next. >> a
the house has a whiff of plan "b" and boehner on it. i think it may still get worked out in the band-aid form, but i don't think that's complete at this point. so i think maybe we're all going to be working tomorrow. >> i'm just getting word now that the house gop is going to caucus in an hour. they may not vote, but they'll be talking about what they're hearing coming from the senate and probably get more details at that point. it's not like we're not going to get any progress. but as i said before, rick, for something this important, would you want this to be that much of a rush job in. >> i agree with you. i totally absolutely agree with you. that it needs to be taken time. my reservation all day that i kept mum was is the house going to get this at ten minutes to midnight? i think those guys have some responsibility to do the job a little differently than the health care plan. i don't think they want to find out what's in it after they vote on it. >> without stating the obvious, it would be nice they took their time before the deadline opposed to after it. but i'm going to leave
